Reviewer Credits, the global expert network that makes peer review visible and helps researchers get recognition for their work, is now partnering with ScienceOpen to make Peer Review visible and highlight its importance in the publishing landscape.
With a unique infrastructure for open post-publication peer review, ScienceOpen works with the research community increase scientific rigor and make an impact.
Together, both companies will highlight research articles in ScienceOpen’s database that have been reviewed by Reviewer Credit members. Moreover, the reviewer status from Reviewer Credits, will be now reflected in Science Open’s user profiles.
Peer review as the central mechanism of quality control in scholarly publishing is of central value to academics. Recognizing researchers for their important contribution to a functioning publishing ecosystem is vital to keep it functioning.
Dr. Stephanie Dawson, CEO of ScienceOpen
Reviewer Credits is the global network that recognizes and rewards the vital contribution peer reviewers make to scientific publishing. The Berlin-based sciencetech company collaborates with international publishing houses and research institutes and is home to more than 25,000 reviewers.
Making peer review visible on as many articles as possible is the best way to remind researchers of its importance. In an environment where manipulated peer reviews are a growing concern, we want to make a positive contribution through labelling scientific self-control.
Dr. Sven Fund, Reviewer Credit’s Managing Director.
